Let's just say they aren't very friendly during rut season.

Rut season is coming up soon and if you don't know what that means, it's pretty much elk mating season where bull elk will be courting potential mates.The problem is that they aren't the friendliest animals during this time, even if you are in a car you are too close. A few years ago the Yellowstone National Park's YouTube caught an amazing video of a bull elk straight up ramming cars that were too close to them. Check this out.

Remember, they are wildlife for a reason. Keep a safe distance, because I am pretty sure you don't want to go into the shop for your car with a bunch of puncture holes from an elk. Be safe out there.
